    Honda, this motor company, will demo an experimental model of a walking assist device which could support walking for the elderly and other people with weakened leg muscles. Using data obtained from hip angle sensors, the control CPU communicates to the flat brushless motors and provides the right amount of assistance to help those using the device lengthen their strides. "Applying cooperative control based on the information obtained from hip angle sensors, the motors provide optimal assistance based on a command from the control CPU." This walking assist device weighs 6.2lbs, one time charge can used at 4.5km/hour for 2 hours.

    Another green stuff. The Powermonkey-eXplorer(GBP 65; about $140) is a two-part device, which can be used separately or together. The PowerMonkey is a fat, water-resistant, tubular unit that holds a rechargeable battery(2200mAh). It included the LED display that indicates the power status(I like this design). The PowerMonkey can connect via USB to your computer or sockets, but can link directly to the folding 'solar slave' for power from the sun. The solar slave can also connect directly to your gadgets. It can connect in your cellphone, PSP, iPod and iPhone. If you gadget isn't covered, their site included list of extra power tips, covering a wide range of devices, costing a reasonable £2.50 each. The PowerMonkey takes 3.5 hours to charge via mains power, six hours via USB, and a sluggish 18 hours via solar panel.

    The Stelarc is renowned for his augmented body art forms. He has built a giant spider like walking frame. A six-legged, pneumatically powered walking machine has been constructed for the body. The locomotor, with either ripple or tripod gait, moves fowards, backwards, sideways and turns on the spot. It can also squat and lift by splaying or contracting its legs. The body is positioned on a turn-table, enabling it to rotate about its axis. It has an exoskeleton on its upper body and arms... see the video. A weird idea!
